The author also gives us historical and geographical information about the places they visit. Each chapter includes activities testing the four skills and some Pet-style exercises.

    • James Joyce   

      Dubliners

      Level C1

      In Dubliners Joyce explores the lives of his fellow citizens in colonial Dublin, his native city, at the turn of the 20th century.

      Through the power of astute observation and artistry, the writer reveals the deep-seated connections between the forces of family, religion and political subjection - forces that trap the characters into what Joyce called a moral paralysis.

      The stories can be read independently or as part of an organic whole, a path from childhood to maturity which offers hidden clues to interconnections between characters, situations and themes.

      Joyce’s innovative approach to the short story form has made this collection one of the most enduring masterpieces of European literature.

      This volume includes an essential biography of the author, an extensive introduction, spot-on notes to the text and a wide range of activities for comprehension and analysis.

The lawyer investigates and deciphers the mystery, which is not only a detective case but a reflection on the ambiguity of human nature and a criticism of Victorian hypocrisy.

    • Mary Shelley   

      Frankenstein

      Level C1

      A misshapen superhuman embittered by societal isolation is the phenomenal output of an experiment never carried out before. The creator of this “patchwork human” is the science student Victor Frankenstein. The facts unravel mainly between the breath-taking sights of the Alps and the frozen expanses of the Arctic Ocean, both serving as optical emblems of endurance, unforgiving ordeals and relentless curiosity for exploration. In the background there is the story of a family: a hallmark among the shattered certainties of the tormented Victor, faced with his public and domestic responsibilities. He is a pioneering scientist, functional father to his nameless and identity-bereft “child” and treasured betrothed.

    • Joseph Conrad   

      Heart of Darkness

      Level C1

      Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is regarded as a masterpiece of English literature for its vibrant denunciation of European colonialism and its inhuman exploitation by trading companies in Africa.

      The protagonist, an experienced sailor named Marlow, tells his fellow travellers about a previous journey through the unexplored regions of Africa that took him to the ultimate limit between reason and folly. As captain of a steamer, his aim was to find Kurtz, an agent for an ivory trading company, whose tracks had been lost years before. Rumors and strange stories which revolve around Kurtz will lead Marlow to an extreme obsession with this mysterious man and eventually to their encounter in a remote village up the Congo River. More than a real expedition, this experience becomes for Marlow a spiritual and metaphysical journey within himself.
